Dream A Highway – Melbourne Festival Added

With the incredible and continuing support that has been shown by music loving fans of Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings, Love Police Touring are excited to announce a very special musical celebration called DREAM A HIGHWAY featuring Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings Machine, Willie Watson and Haas Kowert Tice at Festival Hall in Melbourne on February 20.

This show comes at the end of a three week nationwide tour that has seen Gillian and Dave drive some 6937 kilometres of our highways to deliver revelatory shows night after night. Beginning in Perth as the duet Gillian Welch, and rolling all the way East to Melbourne, then North to Brisbane, Gillian and Dave are then joined by three musical amigos to transform into Dave Rawlings Machine for a run of shows all down the East Coast. This last special show will be a gathering of all the possible musical entities this group of extremely talented Artists can deliver.

Tickets for DREAM A HIGHWAY are ON SALE NOW. Please visit the Tour page for the most updated ticket links and the remaining Australian tour dates for both Gillian Welch and the Dave Rawlings Machine.

New April Shows & More

After 45 shows in the US, the Dave Rawlings Machine preps for its first visit to Australia, a 6-show run down the East Coast following the first Gillian Welch tour down under since 2004.

For those cities in the US that we weren’t able to visit since Nashville Obsolete‘s release in September, we have great news! DRM has added a handful of shows in April, including first visits to Florida & Mississippi, as well as stops at old favorites in Bloomington, St. Louis, Louisville, Kansas City and more. This April run of shows also includes a co-headline in Charleston, SC, with our good friends the Punch Brothers and DRM’s Saturday appearance at Merlefest! Read More
